Celebrate Dr. Seuss’s Birthday
March 2nd is Dr. Seuss's Birthday. And what better way to celebrate all the silliness with your kids' favorite books and Dr. Seuss-themed outfits.
If you have kids, you've probably spent a lot of time reading these magnificent rhymes and fantastical tales. "Green Eggs and Ham" and "Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!" are just a couple of the favorites in our household. This morning, many Central New York children dressed the part and will definitely be reading a lot of Seuss in school. But there are lots of other ways you can join in the fun after school.
At the Seussville website, there are lots of Dr. Seuss projects and crafts you can do. How about a Puppet Party? Using plastic spoons and forks, yarn, ribbon, markers and glue, along with some items from your recycling bin, you can make all your kids' favorite characters and act out the scenes from Dr. Seuss books. Or for a treat tonight, make The Cat's Hat Parfait - layers of vanilla yogurt or ice cream alternating with red berries topped with whipped cream. And if you're really feeling crafty, show your Seuss pride with Hats Off To Hats. The Seussville website has all the instructions you'll need to create a great collection of Seuss inspired hats, whether it's for a party or just for everyday silliness.
It's pretty incredible to see how Dr. Seuss' books have inspired generations of kids. Theodor Seuss Geisel would have been 113 this year, but he passed away in 1991. His latest book, "What Pet Should I Get?" was released just a few years ago, thanks to his wife.
We'd love to see how you celebrated Dr. Seuss's Birthday!
